The Kansas City Royals, who are heading in the wrong direction, will look to leave Baltimore with some positive news after they take on the Orioles on Wednesday.
It won’t be easy, however, as the Orioles send ace Chris Tillman to the mound to counter the struggling Royals.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals finally started playing like last year’s World Series team, but now find themselves in an ugly skid.
A severe lack of offense is catching up with Kansas City, and being without key contributors like Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas is really taking its toll on the reigning World Series champs.
The Royals, who have lost five straight, have been outscored 29-7 in that span and are looking for something to get their season turned around.
They’ll send Edinson Volquez to the mound to counter the mighty Chris Tillman. It won’t be easy for Volquez, who’s been absolutely awful on the road.
Volquez comes in with a 6.67 ERA away from Kauffman Stadium, and opposing batters are hitting him for a .294 average when he pitches on the road.
After relinquishing first place to the Boston Red Sox, the Baltimore Orioles find themselves back atop the AL East. Led by one of the best offenses in baseball, the Orioles are 10 games above .500 and looking to pad their 22-11 record at Camden Yards.
Manny Machado and Mark Trumbo are big reasons why Baltimore ranks 4th in slugging and 3rd in home runs, and the two could help lead the team back to the postseason.
Another reason for the Orioles’ success is Chris Tillman, who comes in with a 7-1 record and a 3.33 ERA. Tillman has been Baltimore’s ace this year, though he has struggled over his last two starts.
He has a 2.74 ERA at home and opposing batters are hitting him for just a .224 average at Camden Yards. Tillman has been nearly automatic this season, as the Orioles are 9-2 when he’s taken the mound.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Royals are 0-5 in last five games.
- Royals are 2-3 in Volquez’s road starts.
- Royals are 2-7 in their last nine road games.
- Orioles are 9-2 when Tillman starts.
- Orioles are 22-11 at home.
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Royals are in the midst of a nasty slide, and they’ll have their hands full against one of the most successful pitchers in the American League.
Not only is Kansas City getting stymied at the plate, but the pitching has been roughed up as well. Baltimore, on the other hand, has finally regained the top spot in the division and is playing great baseball.
Oh, and the Orioles will send their ace to the mound.
